A collaboration between Ford Performance and Multimatic has resulted in the pair building the first-ever track-only Ford GT, the Ford GT Mk IV.

The advanced supercar benefits from a unique twin-turbo EcoBoost engine mated to a racing transmission, in addition to an exterior design which has been developed to deliver excellent aerodynamic performance. The chassis is also longer than its forebears to improve handling when used on race circuits.

The latest limited-edition Ford GT is more powerful than any of its predecessors and nods to the year that the original Ford GT Mk IV won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with only 67 of the supercars being built by hand at Multimatic’s facility in Ontario, Canada. Prices will begin at US$1.7m with deliveries scheduled to begin in late spring 2023.

“The original GT Mk IV held nothing back for max track performance, and the new Ford GT Mk IV brings it in the same way,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports. “With an even higher level of motorsport engineering and performance, plus a completely new carbon fiber body that is functional and striking, the Mk IV is the ultimate send-off of the third-generation supercar.”

“Multimatic’s brief was to create the most extreme final version of the Ford GT, and the Mk IV is the outcome,” said Larry Holt, executive vice president of Multimatic’s Special Vehicle Operations Group. “A unique larger displacement engine, proper racing gearbox, stretched wheelbase and truly radical body have resulted in an unprecedented level of performance. We are proud to have been a part of the third-generation GT from its inception to this amazing swansong and consider it a significant chapter in Multimatic’s history.”
